Top 10 Tourist Attractions in Poland
  1. Main Market Square – Dating back to the 13th century, the Main Market Square in the Old Town in Kraków is the largest medieval town square in Europe and is surrounded by historical townhouses, historic buildings, palaces and churches. The centre of the square is dominated by the Cloth Hall, rebuilt in 1555 in the Renaissance style, topped by a beautiful attic.
  2. Gdansk Old Town - Located on the Baltic coast, the city of Gdansk’s history includes a long occupation by 14th century Teutonic Knights whose fortresses contrasted strongly with the existing town that came to be known as Altstadt, or “Old Town.” In the 15th century, Casimir IV of Poland allowed the structures built by the Teutonic Knights to be demolished. Gdansk’s Old Town area includes many 17th century structures, including granaries, mills and churches.
  3. The Bialowieza Forest – It is a large remnant of the primeval forests that once covered much of Europe. The forest straddles the border between Poland and the Republic of Belarus, and there are border crossings for tourists on foot or on bicycles. The Bialowieza Forest is home to around 800 wisent, a protected species of European bison. While the wisent are kept within fenced areas, guided tours are available either on foot or in horse-drawn carriages.
  4. Wieliczka Salt Mine - Located on the outskirts of Krakow, the mine is considered one of the oldest companies in the world. Salt has been mined from the site continuously since the 13th century. The site features an underground city, all carved out of the rock salt, including a chapel that is said to have the best acoustics of any structure in Europe. Dozens of ancient sculptures carved from salt are augmented by new sculptures from contemporary artists.
  5. Malbork Castle – It was founded in 1274 by the Teutonic Knights who used it as their headquarters to help defeat Polish enemies and rule their own northern Baltic territories. The castle was expanded several time to host the growing number of Knights until their retreat to Königsburg in 1466. Today it is the most popular tourist attraction in the city of Malbork.
  6. Slowinski Sand Dunes – They are part of the Slowinski National Park located on the coast of the Baltic Sea. The park is named after the Slovincians who once lived there, and an open-air museum in the town of Kluki featuring artefacts of their culture. The dunes themselves are formed as waves and wind carry sand onshore and can reach as high as 30 meters. Their forms change with the season and are known as the “moving dunes.”.
  7. Masurian Lake District - It contains more than 2,000 lakes connected by an extensive system of canals and rivers. The Masurian Lakeland also contains hotels, guest houses and camp sites in the villages that surround the lakes, and visitors often travel by bicycle or boat to tour the scenic area.
  8. Auschwitz-Birkenau – A visit to this immensely large size infamous Nazi concentration camp is the first thing to strike visitors as they approach the entrance to the memorial and museum in Oswiecim, Poland. Devoted to the memory of the murders in the camps during World War II, Auschwitz-Birkenau has been visited by more than 25 million people.
  9. Wawel Castle - People have lived here upon the site since the Paleolithic Age. The castle itself was first built in the 14th century, at the command of Polish monarch Casimir III the Great. The Gothic castle is home to the only preserved piece of the Polish Crown Jewels, the legendary sword Szczerbiec coronation sword. Decorated with symbols and floral patterns, the blade is notched to hold a small shield, giving the sword its nickname, the Jagged Sword.
  10. Isle of Usedom – It is located in the northeastern region of Mecklenburg-West Pomerania that is familiar for its affluence of water and has great number of hotels, guest houses, and beautiful bed and breakfast inns.

Things You Must Do in Poland
  1. Sail the Great Masurian Lakes - The northeast of Poland is a vast expanse of little-known, interlinked lakes and rivers. From the first budding of the trees in May through to the changing of the leaves in autumn, boaters from all around try their hand on Lake Śniardwy or Lake Niegocin, or paddle the scenic Krutynia River. The towns of Giżycko and Mikołajki make the best bases for sailing, cycling and paddling trips..
  2. Take to the Carpathian mountains to hike, bike or ski - The Carpathians, a narrow range of mid-sized mountains runs the length of the Polish border from Germany to Ukraine. The Karkonosze range in the southwest is ideal for mountain biking, while Zakopane range is considered best for skiing. The favourite, though, is the isolated Bieszczady range which is a hiker's dream, and the native lynx might well outnumber the people who venture there.
  3. Be Amazed at the Warsaw Museum - For a few years now, the Warsaw Rising Museum has been wowing visitors with its engrossing array of sound, light and video to portray the city’s tragic uprising against the occupying Germans in 1944. Opened in 2014, the Museum of the History of Polish Jews has put many of those same effects to use as it traces the 1,000-year history of the Jewish people in Poland. The result is an entertaining – and highly moving – journey through time.
